The IAHR Symposia on River, Coastal and Estuarine Morphodynamics (RCEM) provide a forum for the scientists and river engineers to share ideas and research results on river, coastal and estuarine morphodynamics. The central theme of this conference is "€œImpacts of Hydro-Projects on River, Coastal and Estuarine Processes€".

Conference Themes and Topics

Processes Sediment yield and sediment transport, Incised rivers, Alluvial rivers, Deltas, estuaries, bays, Responses of river and estuaries to floods and storms, Environmental and ecological aspects of morphological processes

Field investigations, experiments, and simulations Impacts of catastrophic events on morphological processes, Landslides and Debris flows, Turbulent flow in rivers and coastal areas, Modeling of catchment and fluvial processes

Man-nature interaction Impacts of large hydraulic structures on catchment, fluvial and coastal processes, Disturbance of stream-lake systems and its environmental and ecological impacts, Sedimentation processes in large reservoirs, River engineering and restoration, habitat protection, environmental flows

Focuses River confluences, tributaries and distributaries, Bedforms, bars and braiding, River bends and meandering, scouring and bank erosion, Turbidity currents and submarine morphodynamics, Tidal flats, costal and shelf bedforms.
